Columbia Journalism Review turns 60
Columbia Journalism Review is celebrating is 60th anniversary. Kyle Pope, current editor notes the following: In an opening essay, “Why a review of journalism?,” the editors felt obliged to explain to readers what wasn’t at all obvious: the need for an outlet to critique the press. “There exists,” they wrote, “a widespread uneasiness about the state of journalism. The Review shares this uneasiness, not over any supposed deterioration but over the probability that journalism of all types is not yet a match for the complications of our age. . . .
The urgent arguments for a critical journal far outweigh the hazards…
Given all that has transpired since, it is remarkable that the arguments CJR’s editors laid out six decades ago, and indeed much of the tenor of the magazine’s earliest coverage, resonate today.”

 Its anniversary issue, says Pope, explores the scope and ambition of CJR over its life, organized thematically. Have a look here
